Re: Trouble sleeping after Japanese food

I've never eaten much Japanese food Pete but when I lived in Indonesia, I ate tofu all the time without any problems. They had another dish, Tempe, also made from soya and I loved the stuff, used to have it for lunch every day.

Re: Electric Cars

That Honda city car in the video above is similar to the Renault Twizy which has been around in Europe for a few years now. You see quite a few of them around where I am in Luxembourg city, I think mainly because you can find places to park them on the small old streets in the centre of town. I know...

Discoveries of lush tropical grasses and trees have been found under the melted ice in areas of Antarctica.
From fifty odd million years ago when C02 levels were more than double what they are now and sea levels were 200 feet higher!

Re: Electric Cars

It was rumoured that there would be an electric PCX available in Thailand this year. If so I certainly would be interested, perhaps linking it to solar panels on the car port.

Re: Global Warming 2

The price of both Lithium batteries and solar PV panels are dropping, at least by 50% by 2020 and most likely by more and the price of oil is going up, so where do you think the clever money is going to go?
